When asked if there is pressure to win the title, the defender told Sky Sports News: "You could go round with this question to five or six clubs and say the same.
"That's why the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world.
"It's not enough to just spend the money, I think a lot of clubs do that.
"It will take something special, but we will just do as much as we can now in the preparations. Buying new players is one thing, but the way we have prepared has been really good so far and we're doing our best to be one of the teams to compete for every trophy."
